In this follow-up to his popular Beginning C# Programming video, former Microsoft developer and C# expert Eric Lippert introduces you to intermediate-level C# concepts and practices through a series of helpful examples, exercises, and projects. This hands-on video course takes you into more complex examples of object-oriented programming, as well as types, file management, and event-driven programming—including the creation of a graphical user interface (GUI).
To provide you with a smooth transition from his earlier video, Eric reviews topics from the Beginning course, including values, variables, arrays, statements, loops, and writing specifications. Through the course of the Intermediate C# Programming video, you will:
Learn about generic collection types, such as lists and dictionaries, and enumerated types that represent things like days of the week
Dive into file management and learn how to use text files and embedded resources
Understand the types of problems OOP was designed to solve
Work with OOP classes, constructors, fields, methods, virtual methods, object properties, type checking, and inheritance
Explore the five SOLID principles of good OOP design, and check to see if your work adheres to them
Use event-driven programming with Windows Presentation Foundation to create a GUI
